IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF ARIZONA
Pending before the Court are Petitioner Caulin Spinks’ Petition for Writ of Habeas
Corpus, (Doc. 1), Respondent Conrad Graber’s Response to Petition for Writ of Habeas
Corpus and Suggestion of Mootness, (Doc. 8), and United States Magistrate Judge John
Z. Boyle’s Report and Recommendation (“R&R”), (Doc. 9). The R&R recommends that
the Court deny and dismiss the Petition because it is moot. (Doc. 9 at 4.) The Magistrate
Judge advised the parties that they had fourteen days to file objections to the R&R and
that failure to file timely objections could be considered a waiver of the right to obtain
review of the R&R. (Id. (citing Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b); United States v. Reyna-Tapia, 328
F.3d 1114, 1121 (9th Cir. 2003)).
The parties did not file objections, which relieves the Court of its obligation to
review the R&R. See Reyna-Tapia, 328 F.3d at 1121; Thomas v. Arn, 474 U.S. 140, 149
(1985) (“[Section 636(b)(1)] does not . . . require any review at all . . . of any issue that is
not the subject of an objection.”); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3) (“The district judge must
determine de novo any part of the magistrate judge’s disposition that has been properly
objected to.”). The Court has nonetheless reviewed the R&R and finds that it is well-
taken. The Court will accept the R&R and deny the Petition. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)
(stating that the district court “may accept, reject, or modify, in whole or in part, the
findings or recommendations made by the magistrate”); Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(b)(3) (“The
district judge may accept, reject, or modify the recommended disposition; receive further
evidence; or return the matter to the magistrate judge with instructions.”). Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Magistrate Judge Boyle’s R&R (Doc. 9) is accepted and
adopted by the Court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Petitioner’s Petition for Writ of Habeas
Corpus (Doc. 1) is denied and dismissed with prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that a certificate of appealability and leave to
proceed in forma pauperis on appeal are denied.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall terminate this action.
Dated this 19th day of August, 2015.
